ICYMI, here is the analogy we adopted as a way to educate people about sex. Consider the pizza to be an experience you have with your partner and the toppings to be the sexual acts you choose to engage in with your partner. You can have pepperoni, mushroom, spinach, or pineapple and they’re all equally valid. No topping is “wrong” to have. It’s whatever your preferences are that dictate what you choose to be on that pizza. The same applies to sex. All the sexual acts you see in this picture (and, yes, there are more) are acts that you can enjoy with your partner and they are all equally valid to have. You do not have to put any toppings you don’t like on a pizza, just like you don’t have to have a specific sex act to make your sex matter. YOU get to choose what YOU have. Nothing is right or wrong because it’s all a matter of preference. This means, contrary to popular belief, that vaginal intercourse is not the end-all, be-all sex act, it is rather just one of the MANY sex acts you can enjoy with your partner and is not mandatory or even necessary to have. Plenty of people enjoy healthy, great sex lives without ever having vaginal intercourse added to their “pizza”. I personally think society uses sex as a tool for validation rather than as a natural experience you have to feel pleasure. For men, it’s about competition. The validator for them is the amount of women they have sex with. For women, it’s about purity. The way society perceives their worth is by the lack of sexual partners they have. But whether you choose to have or not have sex does not make you any less valuable as a human being. And the sex you have and who you have it with is completely valid and important. YOUR preferences matter. YOUR sexuality matters. And it’s not up to society to decide what you have or don’t have. The choice is completely given to you, so take advantage of this beautiful gift and have sex for what it is: a pleasurable, consensual experience you can share with someone, even if society may not validate it. #icymi #fiu #fiulgbtqa #simplepleasures #lgbtqa #sex #sexed #consent #itsonus #pizza #allsexmatters #yourchoice #whatissex #inclusive #youmatter
Not every woman wants to have a child. That's okay. You have no right shaming her for it. . . . . #youtuber #indianyoutuber #activist #feminism #influencer #sjw #vegan #indianfeminist #womanempowerment #girllove #equality #consent #rapeculture #nomeansno #metoo #timesup

Erectile dysfunction can happen at any age! But don’t fret, it is often curable and may not even be due to any physical issues! It could be a simple fix so don’t be afraid to ask your doctor about ED.
“Please don’t look at this photo and want to slowly remove the cloth” Why have 9/10 of the women I know been sexually assaulted?
Sharing something this vulnerable, raw and revealing full of love, power, sensuality and the feminine is not easy. Every time it goes out to the world you know there will be people who cluck their tongue at you and make a story of who they think you are in a negative light. That’s okay. Because all of the above is uncomfortable and certainly not celebrated in society enough and with true lack of judgement. So I want to contribute these moments until it’s so normal, no one second guesses themselves about it. They just share the love. . . . . . . . #burlesque #show #dance #justask #consent #remedymoore #art #dancing #redlips #blackandwhite

💗Full of fucking rage after Trumps IGNORANT AS FUCK tweet this morning. Let’s make rape not okay FOR ONCE IN HISTORY. For centuries women have shouldered the burdens of men’s actions while they merely get a slap on the wrist. Where has that gotten us? Here. With this flaming pile of shit for brains as a president. Sexual predators should be HELD FUCKING ACCOUNTABLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS. Forgiveness is an escape of accountability.💗 #crossstitch #embroidery #handmade #etsy #etsyshop #womensmarch #equality #notaskingforit #metoo #womenempowerment #womensrights #consent #consentissexy #fucktrump #trump #resist #resistance #notmypresident #feminist #feministart #whyididntreport #scumoftheearth #holdmenaccountable #boyswillbeboys #accountability #postponethevote

✂️Table Cloth Garment sketch✂️ *this is not something I have publicly talked about before today* Today I stand up and say not anymore. No longer will I feel shame for things that have happened to me. I’m a survivor and my story is that of strength. It will be a constant working through and I’ve accepted that. 1 in 3 women experience sexual abuse in their lifetime. 1 in 3 Canadians understand what sexual consent is. Consent doesn’t equate to dating. Consent doesn’t equate to being in a relationship. Consent isn’t free reign to someone else’s body. Consent isn’t forcing someone to submit and obey, regardless of whether you are “dating” or not. To everyone who has experienced any form of sexual abuse, you are not alone. You are not “damaged goods”. You are radiant strength and I stand with you. #womenarestrong #consent #ourstoryisstrength

I had no intention of posting tonight. And yet I feel moved to do so. I have to do my part to change the narrative. ☮️ ☮️ Out of all the amazing people here on IG, there is no doubt some have been victims of sexual assault, harassment, abuse, etc. I just want you to know, you are supported, you aren't alone, no one has the right to judge you. As a mom of two boys, I will never excuse any behavior as "boys will be boys, so it doesn't matter." Because humanity, respect, consent and love should be our guiding principles, not excuses. My pastor posted this and I want to share part of his words...."You DO matter. Your integrity matters. Your identity matters. Your voice matters. You are amazing." ☮️ ☮️ I pray for you a sense of peace. An understanding of your own amazing, remarkable strength. #bestrong #youareenough #consent #ibelieve #consentmatters #victimblamingiswrong
Just finished this extraordinary novel about consent, agency, and what we tell ourselves to justify what we do, and what others do to us 🍓
‪“Children are to be seen and not heard.” I was being seen and fondled without my consent. I have blurred the memories and deny the painful truth.‬ ‪There are parents & people believing they are protecting children. Not every adult is safe. The sex education curriculum needs to include consent, real facts that could adequately educate and inform children on human sexuality. ‪We all deserve to be safe and free from sexual assault and violence. . #whyididntreport ‬ ‪#ibelievethesurvivors#metoo #coachinglife #nonbinary #sexpositive #consent
For most of my childhood and adolescence, I had many "peer" males grope, fondle, and what they called "caress" me. In class sometimes even. In the halls. At lunch. It was an everyday occurrence. These guys had me convinced that if I said anything, I'd be labeled a "whore" or "slut," and that everyone would judge me. I saw how other girls were called similar. I was a good girl. I didnt want that kind of attention. It didnt matter that I told these guys, "No." I was somehow convinced it was my fault. I had a relative who would do similar. I tried talking to a relative about how the boy made me uncomfortable. I was dismissed, and was told that there was no way this boy would do such a thing. You see, to everyone else, he called me names, so that didnt make sense. And after years, he finally forced me to give him oral. I haven't seen him since. There were other smaller incidents in high school, but these were happening to multiple girls, and I'm not sure how far those went. But there were a group of boys that forced me to give them oral. In school. By this time, who would believe me? I had been conditioned by others to just accept this as a thing that happened, and I was too ashamed to tell anyone. I was a good Christian girl. "These things don't happen to good Christian girls." I was a virgin met the "sperm donor" at 19. I invited him over to watch a movie. He expected more. I told him, "No," and I tried to fight him off. It didn't work. I cried for hours in the shower that night. He wouldn't leave until morning when he decided that he and I were together because he "doesn't fuck just anyone." I didnt know what to say or do. He just kept coming around, and I just accepted this as normal. I tried to do things away (specifically to get away) from him, and he'd always find a way to come or show up. I finally got the nerve to stand up to him after I found out I was pregnant. He then started stalking me and threatening me and my family. I've only ever had a consensual relationship with my current husband. #whyididntreport #feminism #feminist #metoo #consent #rape #safebae
Friends shouldn’t let friends make bad choices. Watch each others’ backs. Make sure your friends treat girls respectfully. And if you see them ignoring NO- Stop them! Not only is it the right thing to do, but it could make the difference between the night ending fine and lives ruined. #nomeansno #consent #consentculture #friendshelpfriends #watchtheirbacks #respect #healthyrelationships #lcysdvc
Judges. Doctors. Senators. Gym coaches. Teachers ..and the list goes on; would do well to heed this concept. This gift from #burningman : always a step ahead and always humanity considered. #askfirst CONSENT IS AN AUDIBLE YES - NOTHING ELSE. #consent . Please.
"Whose life can I ruin today?" Says the feminist.

Teach children AND adults consent. I work with adolescents daily who struggle with poor boundaries and found themselves in trouble. It’s not always common sense. Don’t force children to let others touch them if they don’t want. @rebirthcounselingandcoaching #consent #boundaries #mentalhealth #therapy #teachkids

If you learn one thing about sex, learn about #consent
Straight men actually do understand the concept of consent in all its various forms. They just act confused when it's our bodies. . . . . . #feminism #feminist #empoweringwomen #empowerment #equality #misogyny #bodilyautonomy #ugh #womensrights #femalerights #prochoice #malefeminist #ally #allies #tea #encouragement #consent
(Scroll through 👉) 16-yr old Rayne Fisher-Quann led tens of thousands of courageous young Ontarians to stand up for their right to a modern education today. Check out her full speech on her Twitter @rayneydaes 🙌 Hiding kids from the difficult truths of the world doesn't help them, it hurts them. They can handle the truth, they need it, and adults can learn a lot from them. We all need to learn how to talk about difficult things constructively, based in facts. Kids NEED the tools to build a culture of consent. The education system has to catch up, we have to do better. These kids are an inspiration to us - thank you all for your courage today, we support you ❤ #onpoli #ontario #sexed #education #consent #respect #protest #courage

Hello all! This is a post about bdsm!! Recently I was (again) made aware that when I show up with marks on my body, those around me assume the worst of mine and my partner's relationship (meaning they think my boyfriend abused me)(I have legit had to convince the owner of my company to NOT go hunt down the person who marked me). While I appreciate the concern for me, THIS IS NOT THE CASE!! I want to make sure everybody knows this. My partner is wonderful and loving and supportive (and also probably the sane one between the two of us) and he would never lash out at me out of aggression. We love each other intensely, and sometimes ya girl's gotta get a lil rough. I love my bruises! And don't be afraid to approach and ask/discuss them with me; I'm very open to conversation about kink, my relationship, and sex in general. Just don't assume poorly of my partner. He is the best and I love him dearly. 💜 #bdsm #kink #powercoupleshit #lovemarks #lovebruises #feralchildrendetroit #consensuality #consent #fetlife
